Sandwell Library closed for refurbishment

Sandwell Library will be closing for six months from Friday 17th March at 16.30 while the Education Centre is being refurbished.

All the staff and books will be relocating to the library at City Hospital, which is located within the Postgraduate Centre. We will be at City Library from Wednesday 22nd March but if you have any queries between these dates, please email or call us on the details below.

There will be a face to face enquiry service, Monday to Friday, 8.30am-4.30pm, and the self-service kiosk allows staff to borrow and return books 24/7, however if you are unable to make it to City, there are still plenty of ways that you can make the most of the Trust library services:

Books currently borrowed can be returned to Sandwell until 16.30 on Friday 17th March or be sent to City Library in the internal post.

To speak to a member of the library team you can phone 0121 507 3587 or e-mail swbh.library@nhs.net

The staff are looking forward to hearing from you and also welcoming you to their brand new facility at Sandwell in Autumn 2017.

Changes to the BASE Library Service

As a response to Covid-19, some BASE libraries have now closed their counter services (all library closures will be posted on the Locations page). All library teams are still providing an enquiry service and can be contacted by email and phone if their counter is not open. Reservations are not available, however you may browse the catalogue and access e-resources. Items on loan have been automatically renewed and will not incur a fine. Most libraries are not providing new member registrations. More information on current service can be found here.
